Mechanical Keyboard Mod

I have joined the mechanical keyboard club and now have a CM storm Quickfire TK keyboard with cherry blue switches. Its a great keyboard and the mechanical switches make the process of typing much more pleasant and a little faster.

The keyboard can be ordered with different switch options, I have the blue switches, which has an audible click when the key stoke is actuated. They are a little noisy (in a good way) and more so as if you over press the key and they bottom out on the board. So to fix this double tap this I followed the o’ring mod which involves removing each key from the keyboard and adding an o’ring to the key then re-fitting. It takes a while but does soften the key after the actuation point is reached and makes them a little quieter.
